Okonomiyaki!!!!! This is a famous dish native to Hiroshima. It was a 30 min wait for this stuff. I was the only westerner amongst a sea of local Japanese. It was damn good and well worth the wait. Menus are in English and Japanese. Beer is on draft. Enjoy!

Really good Okonomiyaki. The noodles were great. Several choices and prices available. Worth the wait if there's a line!

When I got off the train at Hiroshima I was looking for some place to eat. The lady at the information center suggested that I try Mitchan. It is located on the south exit of the station in a shopping complex. I had to go back in and down the stairs. Fortunately, I had a JR pass which let me... More

It was highly recommended by our tour guide so we decided to give it a try. The wait was long, almost an hour. While my sister and I thought the food was tasty, big portions, my parents thought otherwise. It was also noisy.

We had to wait in line or twenty minutes, but our order had already been taken, so the wait for the food in this packed restaurant was reasonable. One can watch how the food is prepared which I found interesting. The food itself was excellent and I will certainly return. The okonomiyaki is eaten with chopsticks.

We had to wait for close to 30 minutes to get inside the branch in Hiroshima station and while the okonomiyaki was really good, I would not wait that long if I were the one to decide on where to eat. The sauce was very good as well as the soba and how it was cooked. Loved the slightly burnt... More

At 20.00 no people waiting for the entrance so we sat down and asked for the Okonomiyaki with everything on it. ¥ 1.500 for a plate and what a combination, what a dish! Enough as a diner. In 20 minutes we were gone, but what an experience. Not hard to find. Entering the north entrance of the station it is... More

We were in Japan for a total of 12 nights, so we planned for a few cheaper meals in between the more expensive meals. Mitchan was one of our cheaper meals and it was perfect. We did not try any other okonomiyaki on our trip, so we can't compare it to other places, but we DX special and thought it... More

In the basement of the JR train station. Go early as a line begins to form later during dinner hours and the restaurant is rather small. Cash only. No credit cards.
